What are the STI test options in Independence,MO?

With a name like Independence, you can bet the fourth largest city in Missouri values freedom and liberty. An important part of personal independence is taking care of one’s own sexual health. Every year the Independence Health Department (IHD) puts together a community health assessment and publishes it online for everyone’s benefit.

Starting in 2013, the Independence area actually saw a fall in reports of chlamydia. On the other hand, they found a rise in reports of gonorrhea, HIV, and syphilis. 

At the end of 2016, Jackson County had 3,735 persons living with HIV disease. For 2018, the reported cases for chlamydia in Jackson County came to 6,437. With gonorrhea about half as prevalent with a total of 3,443 cases. Cases of primary and secondary syphilis totaled 467—a shockingly much higher occurrence than surrounding counties. 

If you need to find STD testing in the Independence area, there are a few options available for your consideration. There is a Planned Parenthood on Noland Road, while they cannot guarantee same day testing you are always welcome to wait during walk-in hours. They offer rapid blood testing for HIV, meaning results are available in just 10-40 minutes. Free STD testing may be available if you meet certain requirements, otherwise payment is usually calculated on a sliding scale based off your income (bring proof). Another option for you is the Jackson County Health Department located on South Liberty Street. They offer STI screening for bacterial vaginosis (BV), chlamydia, genital warts, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV, syphilis, and trichomoniasis. Call ahead to schedule an appointment. Most services and treatments are affordable (though there is a low-cost clinic fee for the appointment itself).

To find the best services and location for you, use our search tools below to compare location features across Independence clinics with our easy-to-read chart. 

Reviewed by Our Medical Team
Your trusted source for comprehensive and unbiased STD testing locations, statistics, and resources. Backed by board-certified physicians and aligned with CDC guidelines, we're committed to providing accurate, up-to-date information to empower your health choices.

What STD tests do I need?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention1 (CDC) recommends screening for the most common STDs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, herpes 1, herpes 2, and HIV for both men and women. In addition, the CDC suggests women get screened for trichomoniasis.

SaferSTD recommends searching for locations that offer a 10-test panel which tests for the most common bacteria and viral STDs in the U.S. with additional premium add-ons like early HIV detection, if needed.

When should I get tested?

The CDC2 provides detailed STD testing information as to when you should get tested. In summary, you should get tested today if you are sexually active, never been tested before, have had unprotected sex in the past, or if you exhibit symptoms. 

According to the World Health Organization3, the majority of STI cases reported every day, more than one million, are asymptomatic; another reason to get tested today.

You should get tested again in 90 days to rule out STDs that have specific exposure waiting times, including HIV.

How are STD tests done?

STD testing can be a quick and simple process, depending on the type of test you choose and where you get tested. Some may require an oral or genital swab, a urine test or blood sample, or a physical exam to check your genital area for signs of an STD.

SaferSTD has identified preferred providers that require only a urine test, a blood sample, or both without a physical exam.

How fast do I get my results?

The speed at which you receive your STD testing results depends on where you get tested. Before you choose your location, find out how long testing results will take. 

At-home STD testing results are usually 3-5 business days, depending on the manufacturer of your test. You also need to take into account the amount of time it takes to receive the test or pick one up, perform the test, and ship it back, before the lab can analyze your results and report back to you. 

If you test at a public facility such as a neighborhood clinic, you may have to wait a week, if not more for the results, which could delay treatment. If you test through a private facility, they have the fastest turnaround within 1-3 business days. 

SaferSTD has researched and identified the most accredited and most reputable testing locations. Click here to find a preferred location near you.

What same-day testing locations are available in Independence, MO?

Some STD testing clinics offer same-day walk-in options without an appointment. Below are nearby preferred locations that offer this option.

How much will STD testing cost in Independence, MO?

The cost of STD testing depends on whether you select private, public, or at-home testing, as well as the type of test(s) you need.

Several at-home STD options and public testing locations can cost up to $250, with most on the higher end, depending on the brand and type of testing. Public testing fees also vary based on income and welfare eligibility. 

With private testing, you may save money on a low-cost comprehensive 10-test panel that tests for the most common bacterial and viral STDs in the United States.

Sexual Health Education

STD Testing and Sexual Health Education in Independence, MO

Like many other states Missouri does not require public schools to teach students about the dangers associated with sexual activity and STDs, instead officials rely on abstinence based programs. While abstaining from sexual activity will effectively prevent unplanned pregnancies, it has little effect on slowing down the spread of STDs.

In an area where the rate of sexually transmitted diseases is higher than state and national averages, it seems that city leaders would want to do more to help residents protect themselves.

The lack of sexual education programs in the public schools is also contributing to the rising STD rate among older residents. Not all STDs are spread solely through intercourse some, like the Herpes virus can be passed simply by casual contact. Without regular testing some students and even parents might not even know that they are infected with a sexually transmitted disease.

This is one of the reasons why regular Herpes testing in Independence is so important, especially if residents want to stop the virus from continuing to spread through area schools. Regular HIV testing in Independence is also critical for continued good health, especially since this is the only way the virus can be diagnosed.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Demographics in Independence, MO

There are several demographical factors that are contributing to the high rate of STDs in the city, but the main one is the lack of available information. Studies have consistently shown that the best way to prevent the spread of STDs is to educate everyone about the importance of regular testing, but this is difficult to do when there are not any programs available for students to attend.

Along with the lack of sexual education programs the city has recently undergone budget cuts that have also affected the number of community health centers that are open to the public. With only a few clinics still open in a few select neighborhoods, it can be difficult for many residents to find a place to be tested.

When residents do find a clinic that is open, many decide it is not worth their time and trouble to stand in the long lines all day. As long as it is inconvenient for everyone to get tested regularly the STD rates will continue to rise. This is also a problem for lower income families who often can’t afford regular testing.

Better Sexual Health in Independence, MO

With its rich history and conservative values it’s easy to forget that there is a health crisis currently going on. With STD rates continuing to rise well above state averages it have never been so important for everyone to take a few minutes and take care of their sexual health. Even though residents can find a few facilities still open around the city, many choose to avoid going there due to the long lines. Now you can easily schedule confidential STD testing with one simple phone call, and only spend a few minutes at a local lab.
